Journal for Christian reflections in the context of social sciences and humanities

current issue

Burda František
The study focuses on the topic of service and its identity, while opening up the fundamental question of the nature of the relationship between so-called service identity and the theological and anthropological concept of the human image. Theological principles are elaborated and studied within the framework of the discourse of dogmatic theology. Cultural phenomenological and anthropological facts regarding the metadogmatic need for salvation in the
service phenomenon are developed. The revelation of the relationship diff erences within the Trinity is relevant to the identity of man given the need for the connection of essence with existence and theory with practice. The identity to be one’s own self must be concretised. The platform of concrete identity is a specifi c service practice. The phenomenon of service in culture cannot be perceived only as a cultural segment which concerns only selected individuals, but it must be understood as the basic means within civilisation of the self-realisation of the individual’s identity.
